Virginian. Entrepreneur. Veteran.
Kyle is a husband, entrepreneur, veteran, and engaged member of the community. A passion for public service and entrepreneurial spirit run in Kyle’s veins. His grandmother was the mayor of her hometown until she passed away; a post Kyle’s uncle now holds. Kyle’s family has owned and operated a local newspaper for more than 100 years. Both of Kyle’s parents ran their own small businesses—healthcare records programming and residential cleaning services.
Public service was a part of Kyle’s life from an early age, working with his family to serve their community. Kyle began his own public service journey when he enlisted in the Marine Corps. Kyle was trained and deployed as both a Civil Affairs Specialist and an Intelligence Specialist. Kyle served as an advisor to a District Governor during his 2009-2010 deployment to Afghanistan, helping the Governor establish rule of law, provide essential services to the local population, and re-vitalizing the District as a major commerce center. Kyle’s role included managing several million dollars in district-level infrastructure-development projects.
Kyle finished his undergraduate degree between activations in the Marine Corps, then attended George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government. At the Schar School, he earned Master of International Commerce and Policy and Master of Public Administration degrees. Kyle served as President of the Schar School Alumni Chapter, where he helped lay the groundwork for an alumni-led endowed scholarship fund that provides assistance to dozens of deserving students each year.
Kyle has been active in the local community for over a decade. He has served as a community representative for the Oversight Committee on Distracted and Impaired Driving, high school debate coach, and Vice Chair of Governance for the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.
Kyle is ready to take the next step in his public service journey, representing his fellow citizens in the 13th Virginia Senate District. Kyle will tirelessly stand up against partisanship, divisiveness, and denigration; always putting Virginians before politics. That is the style of decisive leadership Kyle learned in the Marines, practices in business, and will bring to the Virginia Senate.
Kyle lives in Ashburn with his wife, Carmen, and their rescue cat, Lovebug.
